As the global economy heads towards large scale carbon emission reductions, implementation will be challenging for some and progress may be limited as a result. But as has been the case in all aspects of economic growth over many centuries, trade should be fully utilised to solve these issues and move forward.
Much of global climate action today is focused on tackling emissions from the energy sector and industrial activities. The importance of decarbonizing transport, a sector that produces around one quarter of energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally, has been rather under-appreciated. In the United States, transportation has overtaken power generation as the number one emitter of carbon emissions. And with ever increasing demand for mobility and the rise of renewables in the power sector, transportation’s slice of the global emissions pie is expected to grow further, unless a concerted global effort to is undertaken to buck the tide.
Ukrgasbank has become the first ECO-bank in Ukraine, to support renewable energy projects and introduce environmental standards in manufacturing, transport and social life of every Ukrainian.
What energy-saving measures could small and medium Dutch companies take to respond and keep their CO2 emissions at their lowest possible level?
In 2017, we continued to see steady growth of carbon pricing in Asia. Some of the encouraging trends include China’s launching its national emission trading system (ETS) in December 2017, Kazakhstan restarting its ETS in 2018 after a two-year suspension, Korean introducing new design reforms in the ETS, Singapore preparing to implement a carbon tax from 2019 and India declaring its intention to launch a voluntary carbon market in the country.
Today, at the Higher Education Leadership On Carbon Pricing event, a Global Climate Action Summit affiliate event, the Carbon Pricing in Higher Education Working Group released a toolkit that provides resources for other schools exploring internal carbon prices.
Today, the full agenda has been released for the Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week 2018 (LACCW2018), which is being convened from 20–23 August in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The event – which lands three weeks ahead of both the Global Climate Action Summit in California and New York Climate Week – will be instrumental in demonstrating that there is genuine international support for stepping-up climate action by mobilizing actors across the Latin America & Caribbean region.
UKRGASBANK became the first partner from Ukraine to join the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, a community of climate leaders brought together with the goal of putting in place effective carbon pricing policies that maintain competitiveness, create jobs, encourage innovation, and deliver meaningful emissions reductions.
In 2017, Governments Raised About $33 Billion In Carbon Pricing Revenue, a 50% increase from 2016
At the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition’s (CPLC) third High Level Assembly, the World Bank Group announced a High-Level Leadership Forum on Carbon Pricing and Competitiveness that will convene private sector leaders around competitiveness concerns that have tended to inhibit the wider uptake of carbon pricing.
